Let’s open a big can of worms—or any other bugs! At Commercial Furniture Resource in NJ, there is one question about our wide pre-owned office furniture selection that always makes us itch: “should I be concerned about bugs?” We’re here today to tell you why you shouldn’t!
Pests in Used and New Office Furniture
One surprising fact that many people do not realize is that very few bugs or pests like to live in office furniture, used or new. Used beds or couches can have a lot more crawly things, but when you purchase used office furniture, you are most often choosing furniture made of wood, metal, or plastic—very few fabrics or linens, where most bugs like to live. Further, most pest infestations in office furniture are limited to termites or ants, and can be quite visible to any user.
The Importance of Cleaning and Sanitation
Yeah… but it can still happen, right? Absolutely—which is why the best pre-owned furniture companies in NJ ensure that all furniture is cleaned and sanitized, top to bottom, including any and all nooks and crannies! From a crafty spider spinning a web in a desk drawer to a mummified fly, the best furniture companies will restore your used furniture to a like-new state, including heavy cleaning and sanitation!
Trust Your Furniture Company
The most important thing when looking for used office furniture is to have a trustworthy furniture company. Buying used furniture from strangers online or picking up “dumpster treasures” is a surefire way to bring pests inside, but you should be able to trust your used furniture company. Always make sure to enquire regarding cleaning and sanitation methods, and ask about a warranty as well.
